The ArtCliff Diner in Vineyard Haven hosts a silent auction Tuesday, July 11, 8 pm, to benefit street children in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Funds raised will go to Camino al Cambio (Path to Change) which aims to empower children living and working on the streets of Ecuador and help them change their lives. Cocktails, light fare, and entertainment will be provided free of charge as guests bid on donated items and services. In addition, there will be a power point presentation to educate visitors about the problems of Ecuadorian street children and the work being done to assist them.

For more information call 508-274-8523 and visit caminoalcambio.org.
